In case you haven't seen it
The latest from the group OK Go Notes from the video: "The new music video from OK Go, made in partnership with Chevrolet. OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they'd play the right note no matter where they were struck." Philip Glass would be pleased, I think. This one, below, however, will likely always be my favorite. It was their first: Well, it will be my favorite until they top it. (To me, they haven't. Yet).
